Is it possible to use ADB Sideload without custom recovery? For this case on Samsung Devices SM-T211?

I've read in many article to access ADB Sideload we need go through recovery mode and activated sideload mode using either CWM or TWRP.

    Even if yes (some newer devices does come with it in stock recovery), the signature verification is still there, and often you can't even find a suitable package to flash (factory images are often in other formats). – Andy Yan May 14 '17 at 15:02

Most recoveries will let you use adb sideload but OEM provided recoveries will fail if not fed with signature approved files.
